We love this place. There is nothing fancy here, however; the swimming pool is awesome! It's big, about 60 thousand gallons! The Jacuzzi is amazingly HOT!! Nice!! Continental breakfast could use some improvements but; Popeye's, IN and OUT, Carl's JR. Subway T&A truck stop with ALL YOU CAN EAT SALAD BAR!! All this in a walking distance!!! Place is super...

I've been staying here for 5 years, the last 4 under a different chain. It became a quality inn about 6 months ago. Pros: VALUE! the rooms here are at least $100 less than anything in the bay area, (60 miles from San Jose) and $50 less than most of the central valley. it really is the best value in... More

This hotel is really an old motel. I had to wait for 10-15 minutes for someone to even show up at the desk when I arrived to check-in. Rang the bell, several times, ... just no answer and no notice the desk attendant would "Be Back Soon" or anything. Key cards don't work! It took three trips to the front... More

Great place to stay off I-5. The room was large, clean and very comfortable. The staff was awesome. We only stayed one night and had to get back on the road but if we could have I would have liked to stay longer.

This hotel is right off the freeway near Anderson Pea Soup. The rooms were pretty clean and comfortable but the shower curtain smelled sour. Breakfast was included but quality of food was below average. The rooms surround a courtyard with a pool and was very noisy until quite late at night.

There aren't too many options for good hotels along I-5 in the San Joaquin Valley. This Quality Inn (formerly Holliday Inn Express) is good. We've stayed there many times through the years and the rooms are always very clean, quiet. The breakfast is also good. Be sure to check in first and get their "10% discount coupon" for the nearby...

My family stayed here for one night while visiting my mother in law who lives in Newman. There aren't very many options out here and it definitely feels like a stop over kind of town- but there is nothing wrong with that at all. The hotel is clean and the staff were all kind. The room was a very nice... More

it was advertised as having wifi but 3 all failed. We took one of our two computers to the lobby and but to no avail. Also the wall plug was faulty. The top socket didn't work so we had to move the couch to exchange the plugs for whichever lamp we wanted to use. BTW this has been encountered in... More

Holiday Inn Express is now a Quality Inn. The lobby is quite tacky and I really had reservations about checking but we were pleasantly surprised with the room. It was clean and quite large. We would return.

No longer a holiday inn express. Now a Quality Inn. The front desk person said they just changed 4 weeks ago. Also most of our GPS says the city of GUSTINE and not SANTA NELLA. Great place to stay between Los Angeles and San Francisco on the 5 freeway.
